Event description
A festive family film full of laughs and charm - just what you need to get into the Christmas spirit!

About this event

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O'Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

Driving into the site

Enter through the main Sandon Hall gates, opposite the Dog and Doublet

Speed

Always keep your speed to an absolute maximum of 10mph in the estate and 5mph when you enter the arena (after your ticket is scanned)

Tickets

Tickets will be checked on site before you enter the arena, ask the member of staff if you’re interested in an upgrade. Please make sure you bought the right ticket for the amount of passengers in your car.

Display

At the Great British Drive In films are played on the huge 100 sqm screen. For live entertainment such as music or comedy we film the acts on the stage and display them on the screen.

Sound

Audio is sent out over FM transmitters to your radio. All you’ve got to tune your car radio to 87.7FM. At times we play the sound at a low level from our stage, this shouldn’t be a substitute for a radio. If you want the best experience please either tune your car radio or bring a personal radio.

In very rare circumstances there can be a delay between audio and video due to the specific manufacturer of the vehicle. In this situation, please speak to a member of the team.

Parking

Our site allows everyone a clear view of the screen and we make sure everyone has plenty of space around them. In busier shows we may ask larger cars to park slightly further back to allow everyone a great view. If you would like to sit in your boot, that is ok, but given the height of boots you will be placed towards the back of site on busier shows. Please always, always, tell a member of staff if you aren’t happy with your view.

Sitting outside your car

Please feel free to set up seats outside your car, just always tell the staff member who’s parking you so they can leave enough room out the front (you must sit outside the front of the car).

Please also make sure you have a portable radio. It is important to note, this is a drive in cinema experience and sound is played by the individual speaker system of each guest’s car/portable radio, therefore if you sit outside your car you may experience some sound delay around the arena.

Getting out your car

We encourage guests to get out of their car and enjoy the grounds or visit the food and drinks vendors, just always be mindful of other guests.

Children must be supervised at all times, there is a large amount of vehicle movement and live animals onsite.

Food

We strive to offer food at all our events. Please check out our social media for specific vendors nearer the time.

Toilets

We have portaloos onsite that are cleaned on a regular basis; all include hand sanitizer.

During the movie

If you have any issues at all please put your hazard lights on and someone will come to your car. In the rare situation no one comes please visit our bar who will radio the relevant person. If you need to leave during the movie that’s fine, just let us guide you out. If you know you may need to leave early tell us before you park and we can put you closer to the exit road.

Rubbish

Please help us by putting all your rubbish in the bags provided, or even better, take it with you.

Exiting

When the film is finished always remain where you are until staff guide you out. Please always remember to be careful when exiting and cautious entering the dual carriageway.

Bad weather

As guests you can sit safely inside your car and enjoy the film or entertainment in adverse weather. However, under extreme weather conditions including very bad lightning storms, we may have to turn our equipment off while the weather passes.
